(Laurel Graeber’s article appeared in The New York Times, 3/1.)

If only NASA had existed in days of yore. Its scientists might have had coping strategies for the heroine of “The Light Princess,” who has an unusual fairy tale problem: weightlessness.

This musical, performed at the New Victory Theater by the A.R.T. Institute at Harvard (a graduate program founded by the American Repertory Theater), has source material most Disney-saturated young New Yorkers won’t have heard of: a story by the Scottish Victorian George MacDonald. But that’s not the only reason to recommend it. Richly imagined and delightfully acted, this 70-minute production proves unexpected in almost every way.
